    Description

    Jack Kirby - "Mighty Magon" Illustration Original Art (undated). Mara! Marax! Magon! -- and krak! The fresh-faced young kid transforms into a giant, hulking hero named Magon, Master of the Earth-Forces. This superb pencil piece is an animation concept drawing done by Jack Kirby during that period in the late '70s/early '80s when he was working in the animated cartoon industry. The proposal was never picked up, but Kirby fans can revel in this spectacularly powerful figurework by the King. The design of Magon recalls both the Incredible Hulk and the Martian Manhunter, and note also the Mother Box-like device on the left side the drawing. This piece was purchased by a noted art collector directly from Kirby over a decade ago, and has never been offered up for public auction before. Don't miss your chance to acquire this terrific Kirby pencil piece. The art measures an impressive 23.5" x 18" and is in Excellent condition. There's a reason why fains hail Kirby as "King," and this piece tells the tale.
